Clementine Girl's Purse Giveaway

The Giveaway is now closed.  Thank you for entering. 


Welcome!!!  I am so excited to present my first major pattern-- the Clementine Girl's Purse. Allow me to give a little background. I have this adorable niece who needed a Christmas gift.  Her mama suggested a diaper bag for the new dolly Santa might be bringing.  I decided to create something that her very stylish mama wouldn't mind carrying around.  So, I sat down last Thursday while the family watched Survivor, and sketched out some ideas.  I was so excited I sewed up two different muslin mock-ups that very night, and made the first from a full-sized pattern Saturday.  I was partly inspired by the gathered patch pocket tutorial from Made By Rae, and so named the purse after her daughter.

Some stats on the purse itself:
Finished dimensions are 8" by 10", 2.5" deep.  Advanced beginning to intermediate sewing skills will be needed. 

I've made a very detailed PDF pattern with LOTS of pictures, which will be available starting Monday in my new etsy store.  Introductory price...$5!!!

So, now to what you've all been waiting for....
the GIVEAWAY!!!!

The rules are simple.  Leave a comment on this post, with you email address if it is not linked to your profile.  I will select TWO lucky winners via random integer.  One will randomly win a purse I've created, the other will receive a free copy of the Clementine Girl's Purse Pattern.  You have until Sunday, November 22 at 12 midnight MST to enter.  One comment per person, please.  I will announce the winners here, Monday November 23, at 7am MST.  I will then contact the winners via email to get shipping information. 

Now, don't let this be the only time you visit my blog.  I have more free patterns to share, and more things to show off as Christmas gets near.  I LOVE to play Mrs. Santa Claus, don't you?


Best wishes to all of you, and THANK YOU  for visiting!



P.S. There is a special little boy and girl who need lots of support right now. There's a button towards the bottom of my blog. Go and see what you might be able to do!

That is so sweet that you named your purse pattern after Rae's daughter Clementine - isn't Rae just so talented and generous with her patterns?
